Now in it’s 8th year, we’ll be starting Bushcraft Club on Wednesday 5th May 2021 at 6:30pm from our ancient woodland camp in Westwell, Kent, just a few miles from Ashford.
Bushcraft Club is for over 16s only. It will run for 8 weeks on a Wednesday evening from 6:30pm until 8:30pm (or so) starting on the 5th May until 23rd June. Cost is £15 per person per session.
If you’d like to join us at Bushcraft Club 2021, get in touch to book on either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07553 763397.
We’ll need the first 2 weeks as a deposit, after that it’s pay as you go.
